Frost On The Pumpkins


I just had to make a second card for the Joan's Garden's Challenge #8, this week. I had never used my pumpkin embossing folder from Cuttlebug, and I decided to play. I used Ivory and Green Apple Pure Luxury card stock. After embossing, I set about chalking the image and then sprayed it with hair spray to seal. The tops of the pumpkins were decorated with Diamond Stickles to look like frost.

I used a small manila tag from the office supply store tied up with hemp twine. The stamp set used to decorate it is Whimsical Autumn, from Gina K. Designs. I added four pre-glittered brads and a couple of skeleton leaves as my accents. Hope you like it!

Can you tell I am thinking fall? My favorite time! Have a wonderful start to your week.

This is awesome! I love how it sparkles, and yet the soft, muted tones give such a subtle effect. The sheer leaves looks fabulous with the tag sentiment! Nice job on this one!
